steal this logo – the new and improved CNN light
remember when CNN could be considered a decent, center-line media source? HAHAHA!! these days CNN has no qualms about blasting their conservative, right-wing bias – from increasingly lame coverage and overt avoidance of ANYTHING that could be perceived even slightly liberally, to deliberately uninformative coverage of the democratic convention. their website reads like pure Bush propaganda, with daily front and center Bush video clips/promotions, and insidious quotes peppering so many articles (political or not). even their overall news reporting has become almost remedial.
friends of ours have a brilliant theory that, whether for ratings, political motives, or both – CNN has made a deliberate corporate determination to become more like FOX! and sent us over this amazing logo they put together and hilarious note -
“for neo-cons everywhere introducing the new and improved CNN light with fewer news carbs and great tasting nutra-right…”
we’d love to hear from any readers out there with their own theories… and feel free to download the logo for use on your site, making t-shirts, etc. – ROCK ON!
live to ride
“Viva Para Montar” (literal translation “live to mount”) – pretty much covers his 2 loves…
reader smoke-in support from somewhere very green and mellow, peace out…
here she comes again
goodbye Alex, hello Bonnie. another f’in weekend of rain. this photo was shot last Friday as the remnants of hurricane Alex blasted in. forecasts expect Bonnie to produce a wicked deja vu tonight…
the drunk room
the Dark Room opening last night was a blast! lots of party people in the house, awesome space, comfortable room, beautiful bartenders, good tunes. and a 2 hour open bar that rocked (6 Stolis in under 2 hours) ummm, good party. hope some readers out there were able to follow the tip!
Buddy and the baby – part 2
the thing is, Buddy isn’t much of a kisser. if he really likes you, you might get one. except for our friend’s baby. we can’t keep Buddy away from him. about now he’s realized we don’t want him licking the baby all day. so he sits patiently, watching for a moment when we look away, and he runs in and licks him like a lollypop…
continuing with submission Thursday… reader Marissa was kind enough to share a story she’d written on life in NYC. we love this snippet on neighborhood aesthetics…
“New Yorkers carry immense pride for the neighborhoods they live in. Here in New York it’s no shock that homeless people live on almost every single street. But what you may not realize is that even they proudly represent their neighborhoods. For instance, I live in an area called Murray Hill. It’s known for being a little pretentious and somewhat high-fashion. Therefore, the homeless woman who lives outside my building stylishly sports Ugg Boots, a Louis Vuitton bag and Gucci shades. If that’s not neighborhood loyalty, I don’t know what is!”
seeing Adam Purple outside our door in the LES everyday, we give this observation a hearty AMEN!
we love NYC construction. not just for the giant cranes, wonder bread trucks and sexy hard hats, but the amazing peak it can give into New York’s past. after seeing our post earlier this week on the Chashama demolition, reader EG sent over this great pic he snapped last month; catching an interesting piece of history peaking out, that’s now gone forever…
